An Update from ASME CEO Tom Costabile
ASME Launches its ASME Anywhere Initiative in Support of 100% Virtual Events through December 2021
ASME Digital EFx events bring the excitement and enthusiasm of ASME’s Digital E-Fests to your local community with smaller scale, thematic events hosted by you. ASME Digital EFx events provide a forum for students and early career engineers to share technical programming, career and professional development content, social and networking activities and much more.
Much like an E-Fest, a Digital EFx is made up of similar components, but a shorter duration. These may include, but are not limited to the following digital/virtual elements:
- Impromptu Competitions: These challenges may be aligned with E-Fest competitions to provide students with practical skills and exposure to the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC), Student Design Competition (SDC), Oral Competition, Elevator Pitch Competition and Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D Competition (IAM3D). Impromptu challenges may also be at the discretion of the host institute and local organizers, and they should promote teamwork and enhancement of engineering skills.
- Career & Professional Development: Interactive workshops/sessions focused on soft skills and professional development topics to prepare students to enter the workforce post-graduation.
- Social/Networking: Social/Networking to encourage students to interact, have fun and celebrate engineering!
